    Wrong and unable.
    Spectacular fail by Maytron. Called an election to tame her own backbenchers the right wing of which will now crucify her for losing a majority (however slim and under threat (at the time) by by-elections over funding irregularities in the previous elections). Dropped in stature when the kitten heels went and were replaced with flip flops.
    Negotiate Brexit when she's lost control of parliament at home? And she alone created this chaos. Place your bets on how long before she falls on her sword. Her only chance of survival now is the poisoned chalice she has created re leadership. Which of the remaining Brexit goons will want the leadership? They retreated at full speed when the Tories still had a majority....

    Twice have the fools called elections only for short term political gains and twice have they failed miserably.

    If any of them were any good at doing anything they would not be MPs.

    I'm quite happy to see the Sturgeon fish suffering a bit, a more obnoxious person is hard to imagine.

    We were electing a parliament - not participating in a personality contest. Only Theresa May presented it as that. And lost.

    Objective of election: to strengthen TM's negotiating position in Brexit negotiations.
    Result of election: weakening of TM's negotiating position in Brexit negotiations.

    Wait and see what governance with the DUP pulling the strings looks like.

    The most popular party gets the most votes, clearly she's not a popular person.

    Her party won 35 of the 59 seats with the highest percentage (36.9%) of the vote. The nearest rival won 13 seats - and that was off the back of a single issue non-policy that blatantly mischaracterised the issue and with dubious demographic support.

    It will please the English that Scotland is less well represented but Northern Ireland will now be its new party to contend with. A high price will be paid for (essential) DUP support.

    It would please the English if they got some representation of their own as the other districts of the UK have.

    The Scots are only present in Westminster because the English are obsessed with the union and keep interfering in our efforts to gain independence. Nothing compared to what the DUP will extract from you for their support.
    And, given neither NI or Scotland voted for Brexit which brought us to this sorry mess, you've only yourselves to hold accountable for it. Reap what you sow.

    None of which is relevant to the point I was making.
